The Red Pears - "See What I Mean"

We've been impatiently waiting to hear new music from The Red Pears ever since we first heard "Didn't Realize" back in March. Friday will see the El Monte, CA trio release a new album, but they have a new single out now for those of us that can't wait that long. "See What I Mean" sounds like how The Strokes sounded twenty years ago, just slightly updated and with a slight Latin flavor. As soon as the opening guitar chords hit, you'll know exactly what you're in store for. It might feel a little strange that we're now in a revival for the garage rock revival of the early 00's, but once you hear "See What I Mean" you'll be thrilled that we are.

Henry Vargas (vocals/guitar) says of the band's new single:

"This song was first created alone in my room, with probably one of my favorite riffs on the albumLyric-wise, this song is very straightforward: mistakes are/were made and you can’t always be on good terms with everyone. But we continue to grow and learn. We implement the things that we worked on into new relationships and if those don’t work out, then you learn something new from that experience too. We are all constantly changing and we don’t fully know one another. What you thought you knew last year will be completely different this year."

You can watch the video for "See What I Mean" below. Better Late Than Never is due out April 12. For more on The Red Pears, check out the band's website.
